Founded in 1947 by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour, Magnum’s photographers have served as eyewitnesses to history: from the Spanish Civil War to the liberation of the concentration camps; from the growth of democracy in India to the civil rights movement in the United States; from the genocide in Rwanda to every major armed conflict of modern times. Magnum’s ranks - of more than seventy photographers - include contemporary masters such as Rene Burri, Josef Koudelka, Elliott Erwitt, Gilles Peress, Martin Parr, Bruce Davidson and Susan Meiselas, as well as a generation of rising young stars. Despite their diverse styles, attitudes, and areas of interest, Magnum’s photographers remain united by the organization’s core values: integrity, independence, and an unwavering dedication to honest and humanistic photography.
Established in 1911 by Danish-American industrialist Niels Poulson and a group of other forward-thinking leaders from business and education, the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) was the first international non-governmental society to have as its sole purpose the development of goodwill through educational and cultural exchange. It was designed to meet the needs of its time through fellowships, scholarly exchange, exhibitions, and publications. These programs have grown over the years, and along with the cultural programs at Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America, have provided a comprehensive platform for ongoing international exchange between the United States and the Nordic countries.
This international work is at the heart of the Foundation’s mission. Each year, ASF awards over $800,000 in fellowships and grants to individual students, scholars, professionals, and artists for study and research in the United States and abroad. To date, some 30,000 Americans and Scandinavians have participated in these and other ASF programs of study, research, or practical training.
In October 2000, ASF opened Scandinavia House as a showplace for Nordic culture and life. Since its founding, it has welcomed over 1.5 million visitors, who have come to enjoy exhibitions, performances, lectures, and more. Scandinavia House was financed by the generosity of more than 300 donors from the U.S. and abroad, including individuals, corporations, and foundations, as well as the Nordic governments and the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America, the leading center for Nordic culture in the United States, offers a wide range of programs that illuminate the culture and vitality of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Scandinavia House offerings include diverse exhibitions and film series, as well as concerts and other performances, readings, lectures, symposia, language courses, and children’s activities.
Designed by the internationally renowned Polshek Partnership Architects (now Ennead Architects) and inaugurated in October 2000, Scandinavia House is the headquarters of the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) and the site of ASF’s cultural and educational programming.
Founded in 1995 by Dale Fitzgerald and Roy Hargrove, The Jazz Gallery's stellar programming has enabled a reputation as "The most imaginatively booked jazz club in New York." (NY Times) and "The best place to hear live music in New York." (TimeOut NY). As a nonprofit, it has the ability to allow musicians to take creative risks that other jazz venues would be likely to avoid - therefore, The Gallery is a hub of creativity, a home to jazz musicians/composers, many of them from all over the world but now permanently settled in the United States.
The Jazz Gallery serves an ethnically diverse, international audience that represents a cross section of New York City residents and travelers to New York. The Gallery has many loyal audience members from the region, as well as those who come from all over the world and allocate time during their travel to specifically come to hear performances. Audiences represent all ages -children are comfortable attending since no alcohol is served, and many young college students from NYU and the New School frequent the venue regularly alongside adults of every age. One of the best bargains in NYC, the average ticket price is $10-$20 (occasionally, some special events are $35 or $40). The Gallery is open 3 to 5 nights per week, 50 weeks per year and produces an average of 175 events per year. In 2009 its audience was in excess of 11,000.
The Jazz Gallery produces most of its programming in it’s own venue, a loft space with walls that also serve as a gallery for artwork relating to jazz. It seats 70 people. The rented space is on the fifth floor of 1160 Broadway,accessible by elevator. The Jazz Gallery recalls Soho loft spaces of the 1960's and 70s, and conveys an intimacy and warmth that many newcomers comment on.
Thematic series include the Thursday Night Debut Series, a Commissioning Series supported by the Jerome Foundation, large ensemble presentations, and Composer Workshops with Steve Coleman. Funding in 2009 and 2010 included grants from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Jerome Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, the New York Community Trust, Meet the Composer, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, New York State Council on the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and The National Endowment for the Arts, among others. In June 2010, The Jazz Gallery presented six concerts at its venue as part of the New York City CareFusion Jazz Festival. Two of the six concerts were webcast by NPR and WBGO. In addition, as part of the CareFusion Jazz Festival, The Jazz Gallery All -Stars appeared at Symphony Space's Peter Norton Theater, launching an initiative to create opportunities for jazz musicians at other larger performance venues.
Over the past fifteen years The Jazz Gallery presented nine of the last eleven winners of the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition PRIOR to their winning this competition. This year, in 2010, Jason Moran, a formidable pianist who has frequented the stage of The Gallery for more than 10 years, won a MacArthur Award; in 2008, Miguel Zenon, another musician whose emergence began at The Jazz Gallery, was a MacArthur Recipient. (Miguel is in residence at The Gallery this year.) Every jazz musician appearing at The Jazz Gallery, emerging and established, knows that this is a venue where they can experiment, try out new material, and grow and develop as artists. The Jazz Gallery's 2009/2010 season included, among many others, emerging artists such as Andy Milne, Pedro Giraudo, Ambrose Akinmusire, Dafnis Prieto, Darcy James Argue, John Escreet, Yosvany Terry, Ben Williams and Linda Oh, as well as established artists such as Ravi Coltrane, Roy Hargrove, Steve Coleman, Henry Threadgill, Oliver Lake and Fred Hersch.
This new inter-disciplinary creative project space is located in the Presbyterian Building, a French Gothic chateaux-inspired office building on lower Fifth Avenue. In this architectural jewel with its diverse history, the organization is programming events and exhibitions in which young artists and seasoned curators have the chance to meet, engage and promote new collaborative projects.

Stuart Parr Collection is proud to present rare motorcycles and street bikes from its collection designed by engineering powerhouses such as Ducati, MV Agusta, Laverda and Magni.
The twenty-six motorcycles in the exhibit are presented to the public for the first time, and according to Stuart Parr “these bikes represent an era when the greatest design and engineering talent took Italian motorcycles from the race track to the road”.
During the 1970s, racing embedded the fabric of Italian culture, and the finest motorcycles of this era evolved from this racing heritage. The Stuart Parr Collection centers on some of the most significant classic Italian motorcycles of this era, in particular the MV Agusta four-cylinder. Few production motorcycles enjoy the legacy of the MV Agusta four, which has an engine virtually identical to those racing bikes who won 13 World Manufacturers’ Championships and took victories in 91 Grands Prix. The MV Agusta four’s legacy is unparalleled.
The bikes on display are hand-built and forged by artisans, representing a bygone era of motorcycle design and limited production runs. The beauty in these motorcycles is in the myriad of details, wonderful aluminum castings and bespoke design. No two bikes are alike.

This is not a place for the expected: we are a kunsthalle, a cabinet of curiosities, a collection of the rare, repulsive, delicious, old, new, high, low, good and bad that serves as a barometer of contemporary culture. We encourage the simultaneous occupation of the city, the marketplace and the mind by presenting work that mines the fringes of society and exposes our unique behaviors through the lens of the most fundamental human activity: sex.
This is more than a museum: We are an institution that believes in embracing society and existing beyond its walls. We promote organic growth and foster an entrepreneurial spirit that values original ideas. To do this, we seek the engagement and collaboration of fearless visionaries from all industries who challenge, stimulate and disrupt the status quo.
Together we develop innovative events, exhibits, products and experiences that bring the best of current scholarship on sex and sexuality to the widest possible audiences.

Hello and Welcome to Bagel Ketubahs — the only website out there that sells 100% Gay Only Ketubot.
So how did we get started?
As many couples know, searching for that gorgeous and absolutely perfect Ketuah can be extremely hard and time consuming. It’s even more difficult when trying to find a gay Ketubah that matches you as a couple, without running into roadblocks — you found the art, but they don’t offer a text with two grooms or two brides. Or you found that perfect text, but their designs are not very up to date, or just not your taste.
That’s where we come in. Our website and, the ideas and inspirations that followed, were born out of this very predicament. We thought, rather than visit a website with tons of Ketubot that perhaps only offer one or two that could work, why not create a page that contains all of the best, and most gorgeous gay only Ketubot? Add that to our love of great designs and color, color, color and boom! MAGIC!
We are passionate about art and how it can be utilized and expressed through marriage, tradition and most importantly, love. We desire to create a place for gay couples looking for a Ketubah to come and find exactly what they’re looking for without any hassle. A place where you both can find a gorgeous work of art that speaks to you both on a personal level and represents your love and commitment uniquely.
So from the “Bagel Team”, thank you so much for stopping by our Facebook page! We are confident we can help you find exactly what you’re looking for!
The National Museum of Mathematics or MoMath is a museum dedicated to mathematics in Manhattan, New York City. It opened on December 15, 2012. It is located at 11 East 26th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, across from Madison Square Park in the NoMad neighborhood. It is the only museum dedicated to mathematics in North America, and features over thirty interactive exhibits. The mission of the museum is to "enhance public understanding and perception of mathematics."HistoryIn 2006 the Goudreau Museum on Long Island, at the time the only museum in the United States dedicated to mathematics, closed its doors. In response, a group led by the MoMath's current executive director, Cindy Lawrence, met to explore the opening of a new museum. They received a charter from the New York State Department of Education in 2009, and raised over 22 million dollars in under four years. With this funding a 19,000sqft space was leased in the Goddard Building at 11-13 East 26th Street, which is part of the Madison Square North Historic District. Despite some opposition to the architectural plans within the local community, permission for construction was granted by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission and the Department of Buildings.

The space includes state of the art exhibits, 80 seat auditorium with state of the art audio-visual and video conferencing equiptment, 55 seat theater for video screening, classroom space for meetings as well as additional spaces available for receptions.

This ambitious exhibition presented over 100 works by 27 international artists. The next exhibition in the series will be held in 2012 in a location yet to be announced.

In the Wake: Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11
March 11 - June 12, 2016
To mark the fifth anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake in Tohoku, Japan, Japan Society will present, In the Wake: Japanese Photographers respond to 3/11, a special exhibition that focuses on the enormous response in the arts to the disaster and to the paths that lie ahead as Japan continues to rebuild. Originally organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 2015, the exhibition features the works of fifteen leading photographers, some of whom are considered among Japan’s most celebrated artists (including Nobuyoshi Araki, Naoya Hatakeyama, and Takashi Homma.) Some were drawn to the affected area because they lived in the region or had once called it home. Others took the risk of entering the contamination zone around the Fukushima plant. And some remained at a distance, making evocative images from their studios in Tokyo.
$12; students & seniors $10, Japan Society members & children under 16 free. Admission is free to all on Friday nights, 6–9 PM.
Tuesday–Thursday, 11 AM–6 PM; Friday, 11 AM–9 PM; Saturday and Sunday, 11 AM–5 PM. Closed Mondays and major holidays.
